Today as I was out and about looking for my muse I ran across this lone ranger corn stalk that stood tall and strong against the dry Oklahoma wind. It caught my eye because out of all the millions of corn stalks in the pasture that had been plowed over, this one trumped its own fate.
It reminded me of the saying “Don’t think you’re on the right road just because it’s a well-beaten path.”
Nonconformity is my friend and I think it should be yours too! Not that you should compare people to corn stalks but this picture reminds me that it’s OK to go against the grain sometimes, it’s OK to be different and it’s OK to stand up and out in a room full of carbon copies.
Be like this brave and strong cornstalk and stand out against the crowd. Find your BLISS and run with it….even if that means not laying down and being plowed over. You never know when you might be that muse someone else is looking for. 🙂 BE a LONE RANGER!
